The 83rd Oscar Ceremony was a surprise!
I am sure it was just not me who was expecting a blowout of 'Inception' or '127 days' or 'Social network' all around. Just like we expect a boombang start from Sehwag and Sachin. But, it was not what was written on the cards. Inception, 127 days, Black Swan, Social Network were overshadowed by 'The King's Speech'.
The King's Speech (Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, stood out as the Best Picture this year. Colin Firth was selected as the Best Actor. Tom Hooper as Best Director. David Seidler as Best Screenplay.
Inception on the other hand, rated one of the highest in the popularity chart this year, had to get satisfied with Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Visual Effects.
127 hours, a struggling real life story, was well appreciated but had be satisfied being in the nominations.
Black Swan, Natalie Portman was the most deserving candidate for Best Actress and she bagged it happily.
Social Network, had very impressive editing and was awarded by Best Editing oscar award. The other awards bagged were Best Music and Best Writing.
In Animation movie catagory, Toy Story 3 stood out tall. It was the Best Animated Feature Film and also pocketed the Best Music (original song).
